Guts UK’s Summer Grant Call Now Open

3rd July 2019

Guts UK recently announced that they will be awarding £545,000 to trainees, clinicians and scientists wishing to conduct research into the field of gastroenterology.

The opportunities are open for applicants until August 19th 2019. This total figure includes a number of development grants, trainee awards and a PhD.

For more than forty seven years, Guts UK’s innovative research into digestive diseases has provided some huge answers to pertinent questions, but there is still a long way to go.

Guts UK are collaborating with forCrohns, The British Society of Gastroenterology and Bowel & Cancer Research to fund crucial research projects and work towards their vision, which is of a world where digestive disorders are better understood, better treated, and everyone who lives with one gets the support they need. Research is everything.

Guts UK’s Research Strategy:

  • Guts UK will support research that can make a difference to patients affected by digestive disorders.
  • As a charity closely associated with the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG), Guts UK will also prioritise areas of research identified by the BSG clinical research groups as needing more support. Guts UK will also continue to support training in research for the next generation of health and non-clinical science professionals.
  • Guts UK, through its fellowships, will continue to support the development of the future leaders in academic gastroenterology.
  • And as a charity open to the world, Guts UK will encourage research that draws on innovation and achievements of other fields to speed up progress in gastroenterology, as well as on collaborations with other organisations that can help us meet our aims sooner.
